Ok maybe not punch BUT DEFO tell them how rude,bad mannered and annoying to anyone within a six mile radius it is?
Kids or elderly I don't care....it's RUDE.

owl sad
It happens. Don't beat yourself up. I hope things get better.

MrsDeVere Thu 15-Nov-12 21:13:10

When OH sneezes more than twice in a row I want to hit him with a chair.

Cortana Thu 15-Nov-12 21:57:31

Owl, I PM'd you earlier hun xx

You all need to google misophonia, Ds2 has it and it makes family life very difficult sometimes as he can't stand the ( minor) noises his brothers make. I am about to try a hypnotherapy tape on him.

YADNBU, my Mum does this. We reprimand her for it now and just leave when she's eating. She also talks with her mouth full of food <<boak>>

This drives me nuts.

It's a real pet hate.

I know I must make a noise when I eat, so I am sure that sometimes I am irrational.

DS is the worst culprit. Only because when you tell him to eat whatever it is quietly, he does. Might just be cos he's an alien teenager.

However, would have gladly caused DH pain just now. Just had to listen to him eating a huge bowl of Crunchy Nuts. WHY does it feel like it will never end ? Then, just as you get used to it, it stops.

I may get him back in a while by devouring a few bags of crisps. The deep ridge ones. Except I wouldn't cos he says it doesn't bother him ! Which I find odd, cos certain foods I eat get on me nerves if they are too loud.

I am weird, I know that, in my defence. grin

TeaMakesItToTheTop Thu 15-Nov-12 22:21:43

YADNBU.

And I match your load eating and give you sniffing.

Ewgh. Both of them give me the RAGE. I shuffled in my chair all the way from the West Country to London last week because I was sat opposite someone who did both. The shuffling was to stop me shouting at him THE RULES OF THE TABLE.

Does anyone know what age the eating loudly becomes an issue? DS4 is 2 and at the moment I don't need to shout "Eat with your mouth closed and talk with your mouth empty" at him like I do at DS3 (8) if he forgets the RULES OF THE TABLE. I need to know how long I've got to train him. blush

Fellow Food Noise Open Mouth Chew rager here, vile, utterly vile!

Bag rustling is also one of my 'triggers' -'people take the piss out of me because I cut bags of crisps and other noisy food containers with scissors.

Gets the job over and done with in a second without having to listen to endless rustle rustle rustle noises.

Also work in an office that's so quiet you can hear your blood rushing through every single vain.

I want to commit murder every lunch time when the crisp munching starts all around me.

I've learned to moisten each crisp down so it's inaudible now (to save being a hippocrite for one)

I may do a national tour of talks on 'crisp moistening' and considerate scissor using smile

I used to work with someone who would sit and eat an entire yoghurt with his tongue. EVERY DAY.
It was so disgusting I had to eat my lunch back in the workshop.

Growlithe Fri 16-Nov-12 17:49:58

MrsDV I thought my DH was the only one who has to sneeze twice in a row. Stupid big comedy loud ones too. even when the DCs are in bed. It drives me insane.

MrsDeVere Fri 16-Nov-12 18:02:13

OH does MASSIVE ones. One I can deal with, two is annoying but THREE??
Its so unnecessary

Its just showing off really. Don't you think?

grin

actually serious

Growlithe Fri 16-Nov-12 18:19:17

Yes DH does the big AHHHHHHHHHCCCCHHHHOOOOOOOOOOO thing. Twice. It is completely for effect. He also snores in a ridiculous way. It is just showing off.

Lavenderhoney Fri 16-Nov-12 18:19:43

Comedy sneezes! And shouting -a whooshooo! While they do it.
Food slurping, and not just soup. And munching noisily with mouth open- I have to get away.

I can't bear people eating on the phone either esp apples and crisps - and I say ' look, call me back when you have finished your snacks' ( is that rude?)

Gum chewers. Hate them. And popping gum. Makes me really edgy.

That's why I dont go to the cinema, it's like being crushed onto an economy flight complete with crappy small seats, film ruined by all the munching, endless crunching of crisps and ice from the the giant buckets of coke people seem to need. With rustly packets. And nuts! Stop licking yor fingers! And open the bag! What's with the tiny corner torn off and sticking your finger in the bag and struggling.

Think I need a sit downsmile

MrsDeVere Fri 16-Nov-12 18:22:27

I also hate those stupid tiny sneezes that people do. Like a little pfft.

I think I am perfectly reasonable

DSis does those ridiculous tiny sneezes.

Like a little squeaky "chee"

Pointless, absolutely pointless.

Growlithe Fri 16-Nov-12 18:32:39

We need to define the perfect sneeze. grin

twinkletoescare Fri 16-Nov-12 18:54:25

I love how this has turned into a sneeze bashing thread! grin

Jackinthezombie Fri 16-Nov-12 20:16:11

Carefull, you might turn into this guy. here

jjuice Sat 17-Nov-12 21:45:36

Perfect sneeze is so loud they can hear it in the next town with an exaggerated Aaaaachooooooo noise.

I love sneezing really loudly. clears my brain and gets on the food slurpers nerves.
